Hi ,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to solve the following equation:

e^x=x^3 + x^2 -1/4* x -4

using this code :

NSolve[Exp[x] = x^3 + x^2 - 0.25 * x - 4, x]

but it doesn't work .

In addition I'm trying to solve it graphically by plotting the left and right functions simultaneously . but how ? with PLOT ?

And when I try with FindRoot , it also says that something is wrong :

FindRoot[Exp[x] == x^3 + x^2 - 0.25 * x - 4, {x, 0}]

can you please help ? thanks
